Lunch: Nicholas Restaurant

14 Mar

Our family has been coming to this family owned Lebanese restaurant for years. We’ve even enlisted their help for catering in the past. While they have many locations, the original SE Grand location remains my favorite. Evan and I like stopping in for a nutritious (and affordable) lunch, and we often bring out-of-town guests to dinner here, if only to catch their reaction to the giant pieces of freshly baked pita brought out to the table. Regardless of the time of day, I never leave without a piece of baklava wrapped up to-go.
